A friend's brother told me about them today, and E-mailed me some info on them and some neat photos. I'll post the links later, I'm all excited.

They seem REALLY amazing, they're gaited, and come in all variety of color and height. They're supposedly very fast, athletic and have legendary endurance. A study was mentioned in one of the links that they were genetically proven to be older than Arabian horses, if not their predecessors according to DNA tests on Purebred Marwaris and Desert Arabs. Though honestly, I could care less if they were or not, because it's their ears that really get me.

Some of them look kinda scrappy and sad, but other than that, I think they have potential to be downright gorgeous. (I may have to give up Friesians Lol!) Too bad they're so rare.

Any one else heard of these guys? What do you think of them?

I think I'd read about them before in some horse book...But I didn't know too much about them, really. I love their looks, though! Those ears are just too much fun.

"Horse Illustrated" did a profile on them years ago! I love the ears, but I'm not into desert-bred horses (sorry!). They're hot and hard to train (so I've heard...they're super smart and you really have to be skilled to get correct training), and too skinny for my taste. But that's just me. *shrugs*

I think a lot has to do with environment, too - take a desert horse out of the desert, and, well, he changes!
